Sarah Ann Hext b. abt 1831 died 1893 - (South Pool - Devon)
(Update: many thanks to JH for emails -- I am leaving this post in place in case the information helps others) Looking for information on Sarah Ann Hext b. abt 1831 in South Pool. She married Thomas Knowles (b. 1833, son of Robert Knowles and Mary Coyde) and lived in Slapton. I have their census records from 1861, 1871, 1881, and 1891, and (thanks to a Curious Fox member) their MI which lists Sarah's death in October 1893. In 1861 her widowed mother Johanna Hicks (sic), aged 57, also born South Pool, is living in Thomas and Sarah Ann's household. I have the birth registration of Thomas and Sarah's eldest child Augusta in 1855, but I have not been able to find records of their marriage yet. (Update: There is also a listing on FamilySearch in the Pedigree Resource File for Thomas and Sarah, but the marriage date given there is an estimate. Thanks to the Curious Fox member who reminded me about that entry in the PRF, in which Sarah has the surname HEXT.) A possible match for Sarah and her mother might be the family in Osborn's 1841 South Hams census index (7524) which has a Sarah (age 8) and Johanna (age 45) in South Pool with the surname HEXT. (update: thanks also to CF member who helped with census lookups for 1841 and 1851) Would appreciate pointers to any other historical records for Sarah Ann or her mother, especially before 1861. Thanks!

red mail Devon - (Spreyton - Devon)
This is a stretch to be sure, but hoping some avid Taylor researcher has some missing Stephen Taylor(s) to discuss. Stephen Taylor, born about 1618 emigrated to New England between 1633 and 1639. His associates were from the West Country, but his origin remains unknown. The LDS Ancestral File says bp in Spreyton, son of Robert Taylor and Thomasyne Smallridge. The man who made the entry eventually admitted to me it was a guess. I realize there are literally hundreds of parishes from whence my Stephen Taylor might have come, but have to start somewhere. Some researcher might have most but not all Stephens accounted for. Any help or hints appreciated. In Connecticut,where he first shows on official records, he married Sarah Hosford (d.1647), d. of William Hosford (c.1585-c.1660)and Florence Hayward (1594-1641) in 1642 Windsor, CT.

George Finch b1847 census birth places vary from South Tawton and or Spreyton, Devon.

I have applied for a birth certificate with the details from 1871-1911 census but was told that there was no record of him. I have tried baptism records for both areas and various dates and been told there are no Finches in either areas for several years either side of his birth year. I have his marriage certificate and his fathers name is also George Finch. A new found relative has now told me that they were told by their father-a son of George Finch, that he was of German origin and changed his name. How can I find out what his original surname was and when he came to the UK?

red mail PILDITCH / PILLAGE family tree - Thurlestone / South Hams parishes before 1800s - (Thurlestone - Devon)
Would like anyone who has done any Pilditch research to contact me please. 'Pillage' is a variant (or perhaps that was the original name). I have been in contact before with a few descendants and I am trying to do the 'jigsaw' from reams of notes from different sources. I would particularly like to see the tree researched by Sir Philip Pilditch if anyone has access to a copy of that please. Interest is mainly in South Milton and Thurlestone pre-19th century (also nearby parishes). I have now gone back to Andrew Pilditch who married Sidwell Ellis at Aveton Gifford, 27 May 1605.
